It’s easy to figure a strategy for surviving a tidal wave … run like hell for the high ground.
It’s more difficult to apply that thinking to the Smart Grid. We can see the wave is about to hit the shore… but which way is the high ground? Should a utility start offering all sorts of new energy services behind the meter? Or become a wires-only utility and leave the new services to others? Or compete with the EnerNOCs of the world? Or partner with them? Or emigrate to New Zealand to herd sheep?

The city’s distributed energy generation program is designed to let companies and organizations that have their own generating capacity to add power back to the grid during times of peak loads. The program is part of the Fort Collins Zero Energy District, or FortZED.
In New Belgium’s case, that means a new 200-kilowatt engine that runs on diesel and/or natural gas will kick on when the city signals that power demand is peaking, said Jenn Orgolini More >
The first Conference on Innovative Smart Grid Technologies, sponsored by the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the IEEE Computer Society, the IEEE Power Electronic Society (PELS), the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) andIEEE-USA , will be held January 19‐21, 2010 in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
The Conference will be a forum for the participants to discuss the state‐of‐the‐art innovations in smart grid technologies, and will offer practical applications and near-term solutions. The Conference will feature special sessions and tutorials by international experts on smart grid applications.

Revenue from smart grid applications is expected to reach a short-term peak of about $35 billion in 2013, according to a new report from Pike Research.
At about $10 billion in 2009, the smart grid market should be worth about $18 billion in 2010 and rise steadily until 2013, according to the report “Smart Grid Technologies.”
Pike Research puts cumulative global spending on the smart grid from 2008 to 2015 at $200 billion.

This is an EXCELLENT introduction to the “Smart Grid” for non-engineers.
What does a smart grid enabled future look like? And what does it mean for customers? In this video, Duke Energy offers a look. It was shot on location at the company’s Envision Center near Cincinnati, Ohio.
